Spurs secure stadium funding

Published Add your comment

Tottenham have moved one step closer to achieving their aim of building a new stadium next to White Hart Lane after revealing they have reached a new funding agreement with London Mayor Boris Johnson and Haringey Council.

Tottenham scrapped their plan to challenge West Ham to become the tenants of the Olympic Stadium in Stratford and have instead committed themselves to their original plan for a new stadium known as the Northumberland Development Project (NDP).

Under the NDP plan, Spurs aim to build a 56,000 seater stadium adjacent to their current home, which has a capacity of 36,000. Tottenham had experienced problems in getting funding from the Mayor's office and the local council to regenerate the area around the proposed new stadium, but that obstacle has been overcome with Tuesday's announcement of a £27million support project.
